Actually it was a rather forgettable movie with Kris Kristopherson...save for the fact that the bridge they blew up was not too far from where I once lived

Heaven's Gate was forgettable, but I found Convoy rather entertaining.

At least you guys didn't do the worst stuff. Someone was driving down our street late one night and keyed up to some ludicrous voltage and my AM/FM radio *that was off* picked it up and blasted out what he was saying at an impossibly loud volume. I didn't sleep very well that night. :(

I've herd of that happening. You should have tracked him down and removed his radio with a ball peen hammer!
And he was broadcasting with normal voltage, otherwise the whole vehicle would have shorted out. He was most likeky using a linear amplifier to increase the WATTAGE. Mobile Citizen Band radios are set to broadcast at 4 Watts maximum. With an linear amp, Mr. Jerk was probably pumping out 50W, although 100W-250W is not unheard of, with the right antenna.

I wish. I was in highschool, I can't remember which year. All I remember is I could hear the bastard through my AM/FM radio from about a mile away as he was going like 100mph down the road, yelling at people like a bastard. Like 10pm or some crap. I don't like tons of rules, but a few are in place for a reason. Freaking psychopath.

Oh no. I'm "Commenting a lot." fk me for trying to talk to my buddies on here. Oh well. I guess we'll talk more about it when I'm ready to get squelched again for having a normal conversation with ya'll. Peace, and great convo.

Enough radiated power will induce a current in other wires or antennas. Just like those Solar X-Flares or a Nuclear Blast EMP will do. The Earth was hit by a bigass Solar Flare in September 1859 known as the Carrington Event that induced enough electric current surge in telegraph lines to shock telegraph operators. If we got hit by one that big today we'll all be making memes on cave walls again like our ancestors did.

Wasn't there a huge solar flare event about 12-15 years ago around the area of New York to Canada. It suppressed all electrical power. The traffic lights were all down for the duration, but everything when back to normal when it passed.

Yes and no. There were several power outages during that time-span, affecting the US and Canada. But they weren't caused by solar flares. One was caused by a software bug, and the others were electro-mechanical, caused by terrestrial weather problems.

Nope. You are correct. There were CB trolls. There was a guy that used to harass the truck drivers until I discovered he lived one street over. I threatened to give the truckers his address if he didn't shut up.

What was fantastic one night, when I was 10 -- a bunch of the "CB Guys" (these guys all had Chevy pickups with that cowlick antenna on the roof) found us, down to the specific house. I came back on the radio and shouted, "You idiots, it's 77 Hoover, not 73!" They took the bait, and a kid I didn't like got his ass beat by his father.

Same here. I was a Denny's cook at the time, and my handle was Silverstone (thanks to the Silverstone non-stick egg skillets we used). I eventually graduated to an Amateur (Ham) radio license, which I keep active to this day. LOL

Interesting photo.....but not because of the dude. The original is a 1969-1970 magazine ad for Winchester filtered small cigars. And what makes it interesting is the young lady in the lower-left side of the photo. That's Farrah Fawcett, about the time she just started getting bit parts in TV shows!

Yeah. A bit of photoshoping and I put myself right there. a group I was in on Usenet used to do a lot of photoshopping. Mostly just putting our faces in other photos. I actually had the magazine the pic came from (an old Playboy from the early 70's)

This reminds me of an awesome (and very politically incorrect joke)

The chief of a Native American tribe outside of Las Vegas asked his people for some money to take to Vegas to try a Blackjack card counting system he worked out that he guaranteed them would win. They gave him the money and he went into Vegas where he lost it all just a few hours later.

He then walked up to the top of a mountain outside of Vegas and used smoke signals to state "Wire more money. I'm sure my system works just need one more chance." The tribe signaled back to him "why should we send you any more money?"

Before the chief could respond the US Government set off an atomic bomb test nearby billowing up a mushroom cloud. The chief watched the mushroom cloud and then saw his tribe respond with "okay okay we'll send the money...no need to shout."
